How To Use 95 Express
  • 95 Express Lanes are currently in operation in Miami-Dade County from the Golden Glades interchange to downtown Miami.
  • Enter the express lanes at one of the designated entry points.  Express lanes are separated from general traffic lanes by a barrier of flexible plastic poles.
     
  • Tolls are collected electronically using a SunPass transponder which can be purchased at Publix, CVS Pharmacies or Turnpike service plazas.
     
  • Tolls are based on congestion pricing, which means the toll goes up or down depending on how many vehicles enter the lanes at a time.  Toll amounts are displayed on the overhead electronic signs before each of the entrances.
     
  • Toll free users of the lanes must register with South Florida Commuter Services.
